Nokia 106 Review

A Glimpse

Nokia 106 is another creation by the Finnish company which targets the masses round the world. The handset is simple, extremely affordable as well as easy to use. It is expected to hit the market soon. People would probably be flocking around to get possession of the cell phone which can serve as a great backup option. It also suits the needs of older generation who do not require any fancy features. A desirably low Nokia 106 price in Pakistan would be an additional perk bringing it in the limelight after its release.

Stylish Look

The design, as expected, is simple: a plastic body with a candy bar form. The handset measures 4.44 inches in length, 1.87 inches in width and has a thickness of just 0.59 inches. These dimensions make the phone small and thin. Although the affordable material used to manufacture the phone makes it feel rather frail, its length and thickness makes it quite a portable companion for users.

Display and Storage

A TFT display with 65K colors is all you get for a low Nokia 106 price. There is a 1.8 inches display screen which works at a resolution of 128 by 160 pixels. The pixel density is also low: approximately, 114 PPI.

The storage capacity is also low with only 384 KB RAM. There isn’t any memory card slot which means you have to be limited to whatever space is available to you. Users can save 500 contacts in the phonebook. Since there is no camera and Mp3 player, there is no point or directory maintaining a photo or music album to occupy the memory space. However, you will have some memory for saving text messages.

User-Friendly Features

There are no complicated features in the cell phone. It has been designed to serve the most basic functions including calls and text messaging.

FM Radio and Flash Light

Other than communicating, users can also enjoy FM radio for entertainment or to stay up to date with the news. The phone also has a flashlight with an easy to operate on/off button.

No Connectivity Options

As far as connectivity is concerned, the phone has no Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or GPRS. This really limits the overall functionality, but also makes the phone very simple to handle.

Basic Applications

The cell phone does come with a few basic applications to expand its usage from mere calls and texting to a few other functions as well. There is a calculator, a digital clock, a calendar, a converter and an expense manager available. Users can set event reminders and alarms. At the same time, they can also convert different quantities, for instances inches into meters, kilograms into grams, and so on.


In addition, there are also a few games installed on the phone. Of course, there are no exceptional graphics to enjoy hardcore gaming, but the simple games on the phone can serve as a good pastime.

Extended Battery Life

You can compromise on all other features, but for a backup phone, battery life is of the utmost importance. This cell phone houses an 800 mAh Lithium-ion battery which can serve up to 10 hours of talk time and 840 hours of stand-by time. These figures are special to qualify this latest Nokia creation as a handy backup option.

Bottom Line

At first, the phone does not seem much appealing. However, its low cost makes it perfect for the type of audience it has been designed for: the older generation, low-salaried folks and individuals looking for a backup cell phone with a good battery life.
